On the Rebound

August 8, 2008

I have rebounded from the pain inflicted by our government yesterday and am now a happy camper.  I woke up this morning and received a call from the counseling center who we have selected for our psych eval. It turns out they can do the whole evaluation next Friday.   Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!  I love it when life throws me a bone.  One more thing to check off the list…..I had lunch with a friend downtown at Millie’s cafe.  It was pretty good.  If I had to classify the cuisine it would be American fusion.  I generally am kind of a picky eater, but I like to branch out now and again.  I try to live my life with the outlook that I will try anything once.   It makes it more interesting and I have found various hobbies that I was not so sure of at first glance-like surfing.  It is much harder than it looks and you have to paddle for your life to get out far enough, which is way too far from shore, but the ride in is good.  Unfortunately since we are land locked here in the heartland, I only get to do this on vacation.  And I am not sure I will be doing it in Australia, shark attack capital of the world.  As you can imagine, I am not Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush.  Just a crazy midwesterner that gives the locals a laugh and myself a board rash.    After a nice lunch, I had a pedicure.  Also very relaxing, especially because I am friends with most of the women.  So it was great to catch up–and for a laugh–while I get my feet reshaped into what resembles human anatomy.  I then decided–it’s time for chocolate.  Chocolate is the one item that can make it all good, especially brownies.   It’s like natural Xanax.  And really to top it off, it’s Friday!  Friday is my favorite day of the week.  It’s the thought of the coming two days all to yourself and the potential that they hold.  So what does the weekend hold you ask?  Oh yeah, the bain of my existence….home improvement.  At least I have chocolate…..
